This little eatery gives a wonderful selection of tea and serves tasty buns. We enjoyed our snack with our very convivial host and were treated to the best background music too.

I don't understand why there is an obsession with the Bath bun. I tried this and found it to be a boring white roll that any supermarket would sell for pennies.More

Had scones and tea because Bath bun run out, disappointed to not have tried it but the scone and clotted cream was good, cute little place (I am not local so I cannot say what is truly a good scone, but I liked it.)

I loved it; the staff were great. The making of a proper tea was explained as was the proper pronunciation of "scone". Great tea, great scone fantastic staff. Very enjoyable experience.

I can now answer my own question in case anyone needs this info in the future. The Bath Bun Tea Shoppe does offer a beautiful gluten-free high tea selection (sandwiches, scones, treats) but not a GF bath bun itself. Still... More
